I spoke with @NASA Astronaut and @USNavy Commander Victor J. Glover aboard the International Space Station. @AstroVicGlover is making history as the first African American on a long-duration space mission. He is a reminder of what's possible when we dream big and think big. https://t.co/DV9OXyivbD
Not your typical tune up 👩🚀 TOMORROW, 4:30am ET — @NASA_Astronauts Kate Rubins & @AstroVicGlover will begin a 6.5-hour spacewalk to continue upgrades on the @Space_Station. Watch the mission in action at: https://t.co/mzKW5uV4hS https://t.co/35KQUM4HHj
NASA astronauts Kate Rubins and Victor Glover will exit the station on Sunday around 6 a.m. EST for the third spacewalk of the year. NASA TV (link in profile) begins its live coverage at 4:30 a.m. Rubins is pictured during a spacewalk in August of 2016 when she was an Expedition 48 flight engineer. #nasa #astronaut #walk #spacewalk #suit #spacesuit #solar #international #space #station
After traveling several billion miles toward the Sun, a wayward young comet-like object orbiting among the giant planets has found a temporary parking place along the way. The object has settled near a family of captured ancient asteroids, called Trojans, that are orbiting the Sun alongside Jupiter. This is the first time a comet-like object has been spotted near the Trojan population. NASAHubble observations reveal the vagabond is showing signs of transitioning from a frigid asteroid-like body to an active comet, sprouting a long tail, outgassing jets of material, and enshrouding itself in a coma of dust and gas.

Harvard Observatory “Computers,” like Henrietta Swan Leavitt and Annie Jump Cannon, made the first all-sky catalog. Now, thousands of volunteers are digitizing their notebooks and observing logs, turning these old astronomical observations into something usable for researchers today.
